Are the hotels in Pattaya open or closed (thought they were closed but booking.com shows availability)

Recommended Posts

I have some friends coming down from Bangkok this weekend and they have asked me to find a room as they thought the hotels in Pattaya were all closed.

 

But a quick search on booking.com shows availability...

 

Can anybody confirm what's going on, are they open or closed or something in between?

 

TIA.

Have nothing to do with booking.com for starters. Try Agoda or other apps that allow you to email or call to check. BC won't allow you until paid, then it's to late and they are woeful at doing anything, if you have issues. Oyo has an app and seem open but more expensive than through Agoda. Just check if charges include power and water as most hide this. Stay away from Canterbury Tales. I left early as my original hotel closed. Pays to do research so you don't end up with a disaster of a stay as I did

Hua Hin or Hat Yai hotels were open from 15th this month. Why not Pattaya, hopefully days away.

Agoda and Booking.com  are the same company. Both pretty hopeless. They changed it last year so you can contact before you book. At the moment Booking.com (and Agoda) is telling all members that they must give refunds due to the situation. Usually it is up to the hotel to set their refund policy. Supposedly Airbnb is not doing this and alot of people are getting scammed.

Nope, I have been told all closed.

 

The only accomodation is the Illegal AirBNB etc.

The illegal daily/weekly renters are still active.

First let me say Airbnb are giving refunds due to covid they were No3 in the world for giving refunds, 

Agoda and BDC are the same company you need to check online if they are still open I guess many hotels have not updated their calendars they might be showing available and sometimes these calendars dont synchronize all the time with other platforms

Be careful i booked  a hotel recently through Booking.com which was accepted and confirmed. But i got an email later from the hotel saying they were closed. So bookings are being accepted for closed hotels !!

Also is cross province travel accepted now?

OP I would suggest that you look on Booking or Agoda but then deal directly with the hotel the pricing is ot that much different and you will be sure that it is open and going to provide the services that you want or need.
